No doubt the car has road presence. I've said that from the beginning, and still stand up for its design when people criticize it. However, I'm still gonna stick to what I said, which was that the Panamera won't have anything on the new-gen CLS63. It'll have more presence, more modernity, and more sleekness. While I don't completely approve of the heavy asian influence in the taillight, or the strangely overstretched intakes up front, I do think it'll captivate your eye more than any other four door with its extreme form.

I don't trust online pictures anymore. Certain cars, like nearly all VAG products, look great in photos, but boring in person. It's vice versa for BMW design, and I'm sure the same will be said of the new-gen Benz products.
